Lecce vs Catania

Lecce vs Catania Preview


Lecce will go into Sunday's Serie A match at home to Catania with criticism from coach Luigi De Canio ringing in their ears.

The Giallorossi threw away a 2-0 lead and had to settle for a draw at Palermo last time out, their third game without a win.
And De Canio has warned his side they need to remain focused for the whole game or risk throwing more points away.
"My players thought that the game was already over when we scored our second goal early in the second half," said De Canio.
"We had a drop in concentration and that allowed Palermo to come back.
"In a league like Serie A, you cannot afford to do that.
"I hope my players learn the lesson and know that a game is not over until the final whistle."
Catania coach Marco Giampaolo, meanwhile, preferred to focus on the positives after his team were held to a 1-1 draw by Bologna last time out.
The result lifted the Sicilian outfit to seventh in the standings, three points clear of Lecce after five games.
"We deserved more than a point because we dominated possession," said Giampaolo.
"But we wasted many opportunities to kill the game off.
"The important thing is that we didn't lose and the team is gaining confidence game by game."
Catania have reason to be confident heading into this weekend's showdown at the Via del Mare stadium for they have not lost a game since their A opening defeat at Chievo on August 29.
Giampaolo will be missing Francesco Sciacca and Blazej Augustyn through injury.
Lecce's Manuel Coppola is set to replace suspended Guillermo Giacomazzi in the centre of the hosts' midfield.
